Camp Congress for Girls Palo Alto Fall 2019

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Camp Congress for Girls Palo Alto Fall 2019 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 8 to 15 to politics. Camp begins with a lesson on the structure of our political system. Each girl will choose to run for a seat in the US House of Representatives, the US Senate or for the presidency. She will create her own campaign with a platform, campaign slogan, campaign finance plan, campaign marketing materials and a political ad for YouTube. All campers will register to vote and then vote in an election. Once elected to Congress and sworn in, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby fellow legislators, collaborate with the Executive branch and finally vote on the proposed bill. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President. All participants will receive Certificate of Completion.

The camp day runs from 8am to 3pm. The camp fee includes all program materials, lunch, snack and a GIP logo t-shirt. No refunds will be given for camp registration fees unless the organizer cancels or reschedules the session. For additional information contact us at +1 (202) 660-1457 ext 2, via email at info@girlsinpolitics.org or visit our website at www.girlsinpolitics.org.
